Art Code Space, gallery focused on Cuban artists, presents a collective exhibition curated by Yudinela Ortega that delves in universalityat the same time it highlights each of the artists’ individual creation.
Creating a dialogue between heritage/historical collections and contemporary productions is a lucid strategy not only to make these collections visible, many times relegated to art deposits, but also to review certain genealogies of art history and to update and refresh their narratives that not infrequently have been built around disciplines and dogmatic categorizations.

The exhibition, subtitled 90 years of Brazilian architecture and curated by Fernando Serapião and Guilherme Wisnik, is based at Sesc 24 de Maio, already emblematic of Paulo Mendes da Rocha, one of the two Pritzkers born in the country.

Making a common thread, María Fernanda Carlos reveals to the audience a relationship of ideas of what it means to be in that space between worlds in which we can find ourselves.
